Travel Diary:: Trip to Nainital

Travel Diary:: Trip to Nainital

Hi Everyone!

I was planning to write this post since I came back from my Nainital’s trip and it was long due as well. It took me a good amount of time to create this post as I have to select the best pictures out of all we took during our stay. Today I have so much to share with you guys. I hope you all will love it!

As I did mention in my previous post, it was quite cold in Nainital. I went on this trip with a few of my friends. We went there in the first week of October when we had our long weekend due to a couple of festivals in India. In Delhi, the weather was quite warm that time, but when we stepped out of our car in Nainital, we had to take out our jackets to keep ourselves warm.

The day we reached Nainital, it was very foggy with super chilly winds as it rained the previous night. We enjoyed while we were driving towards our hotel. We switched off our air conditioner and enjoyed the chilling winds with music and snacks. We pre-booked our hotel rooms as it was filling in fast. We stayed at Arif Castles hotel. The rooms were pretty good with the mountain view. The food was not so good, but the service was pretty satisfying.

On the second day, we took the city tour and visited all the view points and tourist areas. It was quite crowded due to the holidays, thus, we also skipped out some places. We managed to visit the lake view, the Maggi point, Waterfall, Cave Garden, Mall Road, Lake, etc. My favorite place out of all what we saw was the lake. It was breathtaking when we took the boat ride. The view was awesome and the sound of the water was so refreshing. Our city tour ended with a small walk at the Mall Road. We were pretty exhausted at the end of the day. We ended our day with some dancing and playing Dumsharas (All time favorite time pass game).

We started our journey back to Delhi the next day and on the way I saw lots of monkeys and they were so cute! I personally love monkeys. I think they are very lovable animal. Saw some baby monkeys with their mommies too (Aww, so adorable!). But sadly I could not take their pictures :((

All in all it was a great trip. Had loads of fun with friends and I will look forward for these small trips in future too, and will share those memories with you in my travel diaries.

Leaving you with some more images of the trip. Thanks you so much for reading!

Weekly Tip – App Review: Askme.com

Weekly Tip – App Review: Askme.com

Hi Everyone!

A few weeks ago, I was watching television and saw an advertisement starring Ranbir Kapoor. The advertisement was talking about an interesting application for mobile phone called Askme.com. In that advertisement it says “The bapp of all apps (meaning – father of all apps). It also says that we can search the best deals, post ads, shop and call – help center. So, I got a little carried away and I downloaded the app on my mobile phone.

This App also has a website – www.askmebazaar.com. You can also see n number of deals on their website. The website claims – ‘AskMeBazaar “Online Shopping Indian Style”is an effort to recreate the great Indian shopping experience online. Defined by its simple, easy to use buying process with basic Indian features, we are a bazaar with many stores from across India. Buyers can see products from multiple stores and buy their choice of product with great value offers from the store of their choice. Indian brands, unbranded goods, local specialties, special festival offers, bargain before you buy, pay as you please and share what you want to buy with your social circle are some of the key Indian features. AskMeBazaar guarantees every purchase with its unique get it trust seal and allows user ratings on every seller and their products.” You can also download the mobile application from their website.

Weather in Delhi these days is not that good. It is not sunny, but it’s very humid which not only affects the skin, but hair too. So the other day I planned a day out, just to pamper myself. I wanted to go for a full body spa, but I wanted to try a new place this time.

I thought why not use the Askme app now and see how it works. At the first glance it looks very simple to use. On the main page, it asks for what you are looking for and in which locality. So I just wrote ‘Spa in Saket, Delhi’ as I wanted to relax myself after a little shopping. It immediately provided with a list of places where I can go. You can also apply filters to your search according to your wish. I was quite happy to see that it’s not at all time consuming and very user friendly too.

4

I really liked this app because it’s so useful and I would also recommend you to use it since you get everything on your fingertips. Not only you get the results for what you are looking for but the app also provides you really good deals.

 6

You can also create a list where you can fill in your interests and you will be updated regarding that every time. I was quite excited to see that because I love shopping and would love to get updates regarding the same. You can also look for classifieds like jobs, mobiles, real estate and post your own ad as well, which makes this app a one stop solution for everything.

So what are you waiting for, download it – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.GetIt and go explore.

Website Review: The Lovely Jewellery Website – Sia Art Jewellery

Website Review: The Lovely Jewellery Website – Sia Art Jewellery

Hi Everyone,

Jewellery holds utmost significance. It’s not only considered a purpose of adoration, but also as a security in times of contingency. Women have a special place for jewellery in their hearts. A woman just can’t resist herself from all the glitter and shine.

1 3

Buying jewellery is another task. From a simple ‘bali’ to a ‘necklace’, it involves a lot of effort. And that is why I prefer to buy my jewellery online as it’s much easier to go through all the designs and it’s secure too.

4

Their Editor’s Pick Section offers you jewellery in not only different colors, but also in different materials like American Diamond, Austrian Diamond, Kundan etc., all at one place which is amazing as you get to see a good variety. They also offer different lines to choose from like Ethnic wear, Classic, Everyday wear etc.

5

They also offer a list of occasions from which one can select the desired jewellery which makes it even more convenient. It’s also easier as they give you a section where you can select your budget and search for the product. Also, they have a Gift section which consists of good jewellery at reasonable amount so that you can gift them to your loved ones.

6

What bothers me while jewellery shopping are the designs. Wherever I go, I get to see the same old designs. But what caught my attention on this website was their customize jewellery section. I was quite excited to see that because they make jewellery according to one’s choice. You can get your jewellery made in whichever design you want. They also provide information on how to take good care of your jewellery as nobody wants to put the shine of their jewellery at stake.

7

lso the exciting part is that a sale is going on their website which is upto 50%, so you get a good deal.

8

www.siajewellery.com recently revamped their whole website and made it very user friendly and added lots of amazing products. So, if you feel like going Bling-Bling this season, I would recommend you to checkout the website.

Thank you so much reading!

Exclusive Interview: FBB Campaign with Shikhar Dhawan

Exclusive Interview: FBB Campaign with Shikhar Dhawan

Hi Everyone,

Have you seen the recent advert for Fashion at Big Bazaar (FBB) on television where FBB allows lucky buyers to be accompanied by the famous cricketer Shikhar Dhawan (SD) on their first day of college?

First impressions always seem to matter when you’re a teenager. So making an entrance with Shikhar Dhawan on your first day of college is not something anyone can easily forget. On this special campaign, we decided to have an exclusive interview with Shikhar Dhawan and see what he has to say about this concept.

So, we (FashionbyRuda – FBR) ask some fun questions from Shikhar Dhawan and let’s see what he has replied:

FBR: Tell us more about the campaign you are doing for FBB?

SD: It is one of the largest youth connect consumer activations run across 220 + FBB & Big Bazaar stores Pan India. An overwhelming response in the form of 40,000 entries made it quite evident.

It provides college students an opportunity to walk with a star & create a mark for themselves.

Exclusive Interview: FBB Campaign with Shikhar Dhawan

FBR: How did your collaboration with FBB come about?

SD: Youth connect, Mass appeal, self-belief are some of the attributes that blend mutually between brand FBB & Shikhar.

FBR: We believe you have seen the clothing range of FBB, what is your favorite part of the range?

SD: Though I like the entire collection, my favorites are the versatile Gym wear & pocket friendly casual wear. When one works out, it’s important to feel comfortable by wearing appropriate Gym wear. FBB gym wear has a nice range, which one can invest into. I believe, wearing proper clothes while working out, makes the difference between an enjoyable workout and an hour of misery.

My personal style is comfortable casual wear. I love experimenting with colors via T-shirts & well-fitted denims. FBB has a good range, which will help buyers bring versatility in their wardrobe & yet be pocket friendly.

Exclusive Interview: FBB Campaign with Shikhar Dhawan

FBR:  What do you feel about this new range, whom will it attract more?

SD: It will attract anyone who wants to look and feel good. Personally, I loved the range as it helps one experiment with various looks across Everyday wear, Formals, Casuals, Classics or even Street Style.

Exclusive Interview: FBB Campaign with Shikhar Dhawan

FBR: What is your personal styling tip?

SD: Style comes from within and if one loves how he looks & feels, others follow. Experiment with colors and be instinctive while selecting your clothes. Good clothes make one feel stylish & confident adding to your overall personality.

FBR: Being a sports person and a celebrity, how do you keep your focus on both your game and appearance?

SD: I enjoy working out and staying in shape. Like my game, I experiment with my personal style and urge myself to try something new. I rely on my instincts – whether during my game or while choosing my look.

Weekly Tip: Website review – Jabong.com

Weekly Tip: Website review – Jabong.com

Hi Everyone,

Shopping online for me is always much more fun rather than going out and checking out every store. The best part of shopping online is that you get your choice of things, be it in different colors or material or price, in seconds and in a few clicks. You do not have to walk or sweat or stand in queue or drag your boyfriend to come with you for shopping (some boys hate shopping, ask me!). You can also get fantastic deals in some websites and that’s made it more amazing.

As you might have figured out that I’m a big fan of online shopping. I have a couple of websites from where I prefer to buy and Jabong.com is one of them.

Now, let us know more about this website and I will also share my personal buying experience with Jabong.com

My personal buying experience with Jabong.com:

I often shop online and as stated earlier, I love to shop from this website too. But this time, I deceided to write an honest review about their website and my shopping experience. Thus, I shopped again with them.

As a fashion blogger, I always love to buy clothes and accessories which I can pair and post on my blog. Thus, I decided to buy a dress and matching accessories. I wanted a summer dress for myself and that too in multicolored, high-low style.

They have a huge range of products and style available and as I’m quite a busy person, I do not have time to go through each and every product. Thus, I used their filtered search. After a few seconds of searching, I got what I was looking for and it was perfect! I quickly selected the product in my size and put that on my shopping cart. The next item was my accessory. To be frank, I already knew what I wanted (bracelet) as I saw that before on their website and always wanted to buy it. Finally, I have it now.

6

I placed the order on 28th April and after a few seconds of placing the order, I got an email confirmation that my order has been placed and all the further procedure. They also informed me that the products with different delivery times may be shipped separately. The email also contained the expected delivery dates of the products. I was quite happy that they made sure to deliver the products before, the time they have mentioned in their email.  So, I received both the products one day before i.e. Orange Leather Bracelet on 29th April and Sleeve Less Printed Multi Dress on 1st May. They actually delivered the products pretty fast. I have been in situations, where I placed the order and the merchant did not ship the order even after 1 month.

Weekly Tip: Website review - Jabong.com

I got both the orders well packed and protected!!

will soon paired these and post it on my blog. The experience of shopping with Jabong was very nice and yes.. I’m a happy customer and would love to buy from them again.

PS: Mother’s Day Sale at romwe.com. Up to 70%off.Start from May 6th, end on May 12th.

Product Review: Dungarees and Pinafores from ARK

Product Review: Dungarees and Pinafores from ARK

Hi Everyone,

Fashion is not just the clothes you wear but also the way you carry yourself and how you feel about it. It lies in one’s confidence. You will automatically look good if a dress fits you well and you are comfortable in it.

There are loads of outfits which look cute and stylish and at the same time are very comfortable too. Pinafore dresses and dungarees are one of those.

Whether it is hot and humid or cold and shivery, you can wear these and pair them with almost anything (sweaters, jacket, tee-shirt, crop tops,tank-top,ganji) and these will look super chic and give you the girl next door look. Dungarees sets an edgy look when paired up with an oversize tee and the cute Pinafore Dress creates a girly look when teamed up with a crop top.

I personally love Dungarees and Pinafore dresses and was browsing for a website who sells these products and I could not take my eyes off the cute Dungarees and Pinafore dresses from ARK ( Here ). They have a gorgeous selection at their website.

Below are some of their amazing collection:

Vintage Denim Light Blue 90s Dungarees: ₤14.99

Vintage Denim Light Blue 90s Dungarees: ₤14.99

Hearts & Bows Burgundy Cliff Velvet Pinafore Dress: ₤22.99

Hearts & Bows Burgundy Cliff Velvet Pinafore Dress: ₤22.99

The brand is different from its competitors because it is well known as one of the country’s leading retailers, setting trends and making sure shoppers stay up to date with the latest looks and labels.

Bring back the 90s fashion with Dungarees and Pinafores dresses and look cute and chic. So what are you waiting for girls! Go check out the ARK’s full Dungarees and Pinafores collection ( Here ).

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you love the review :)
